Basic Rates and other Info

I live on South Potomac Street in Hagerstown, MD (about one mile from exit 29 off Interstate 70). My rates are mileage-based from this starting point. Each visit is approximately 20 to 30 minutes in length, and includes routine items such as giving food/water, playtime/petting time, cleaning litter boxes/other pet waste, walking/outdoor potty time, etc., unless otherwise agreed upon at time booking is scheduled.

Within 5 miles of my home: $10 per visit
Between 6 to 12 miles from my home: $15 per visit
Between 14 to 20 miles from my home: $20 per visit

Important Note: At this time I am no longer able to offer overnight stays, unless it is absolutely necessary, but this may change at my discretion.

I also offer “doggie-day-stays”, where I come in and stay with your dog(s) for between 3 to 10 hours (depending on my schedule, and with enough notice) for between $35 to $90 (depends on length of stay).

* Dog walking: $10 (per walk – approximately a 15 minute walk/outing, depending on the size and needs of the dog; additional charge if further than 5 miles from my home, or if a longer walk is needed)
* Drive to/from vet visits, grooming appointments, etc.: $20

* Administering regular medications (includes giving insulin): no charge with pet-sitting service
* Administering subcutaneous fluids: $20

Please contact me for rates on pet massage if interested.

Included for FREE in ALL sitting services is: feeding and watering of pet, mail and newspaper pickup, watering indoor and outdoor plants, cleaning up animal waste/litterboxes as needed, alternating lights/blinds, key pickup/return, and initial consultation. If you would like me to keep your key for future sitting services, I keep it in a locked box at all times it is not in use. I am more than happy to send text or email updates as often as you like, including cute pictures of your pets!

Note: Rates are subject to change with larger amount of animals, more detailed or difficult work assignments, or at discretion of business owner.

**Discount of 10% for pet-sitting bookings if you refer me to someone else and I take them on as a client and schedule a booking with them.**

Short notice fee: $20 (less than 48 hour notice)
Returned/bad check fee: $20
Booking me less than ONE month before a major holiday incurs a one time extra charge of $50.

Payment Options: Cash, Check (made payable to Nan Roberts, NOT to Minx Pet Care), PayPal; I am also able to accept credit cards as well now using my Square.
